    In earlier post some solution to this DPI issue has been provided (it is a work around,but it works and it can also be used for the many other programs that are not DPI aware).

I can see every single logical pixel (because it takes up 4 physical pixels), the font has that 70s boxy look to it. Are there any plans to do high DPI properly by scaling everything and using the pixels as they are? That would...

    Now looking at this "Observability analysis" plug-in. There is considerable difference with PLSV (while I personally find tPLSV an ok-ish program: it follows the criterion of Schoch (which is not that far off from Scahefer [whihc latter is depending on the atmospheric conditions]). I have the idea that Ivan uses different definitions ofor the word acrynochal and cosmical than some other people. It is becoming a kind of wild west looking at the naming, IMHO;-) http://www.archaeocosmology.org/eng/starphases.htm#Multiple...

    I now see the observable plug-in, I tink it is not using Schaefer. Can't really detemrine what it does, I will e-mail the author. Thanks.

    So Georg there is something in Stellarium now? Was my input included? Would be very interested indeed. Perhaps I need to update my Stellarium (I am still running a test version).

    I am interested in this. By the way I am planning a lunch/dinner meeting around this subject at SEAC17. It would also be great if Stellarium would include these heleical events |(or at least the visibility of the celstial object at the moment of the screening). It is relatively easy, but as always someone needs to program it (I gave feedback on the formuala to be used in Stellarium, but I am not able to get it into a code thread of Stellarium, no experience with that). As I don't wnat to type in...

    Do you have this reference Robinson, M., Classical Philology 104, 354 (2009)? I am interested in the definition of apparent cosmical and acronychal phases. See my ideas here: http://www.archaeocosmology.org/eng/starphases.htm and http://www.archaeocosmology.org/eng/Ptolemy-Phases.htm These heliacal events I implemented using Swiss Ephermis (using Shacefer's critrion). All the ebst, Victor
